Split screen dock in 2.8
I just loaded Gimp 2.8 from 'ppa:otto-kesselgulasch/gimp' with the idea of using the 'all-in-one' new arrangement. I am using Mint 13 Maya and the new gimp interface is not yet in the repository.

That said, having opened the 'new' gimp I see the docks arrangement is a bit different. Whereas there used to be two docks one on either side of the drawing area, now the right hand dock is split screen.

The problem is that just for say the colour wheel it uses loads of screen space. I know I can toggle between 'all-in-one' and multi-mode but they both have a split screen for the docks on the right.

I don't see any obvious way to move the colour wheel dock back to where it has been under the toolbox and brushes docks.

Maybe this is a fixed arrangement in 2.8, if so I will have to go back to my Mint 13 native version.

I don't see any reference to this in the forums. Is anybody else seeing what I see?
Help please!

RE: Split screen dock in 2.8
Many thanks Ofnuts it's great to know that the setup is the same in 2.8.
Not too sure what 'Frag it by it's title' means exactly nor AFAIK but I am sure it's right.

Seem to remember a tear off system for adding new docks I wonder if it's Maya..

Ok, Ofnuts said 'frag by title' = fragment so, detach the dock by grabbing the title, great.
The title is in this case the 'black-n-white' tag in dock, top left.

Once it's grabbed, drag it over the other docks near the top, until a thin green line highlights at the top edge. then let go. Brilliant.

Back to a single dock stack. Keep the faith.
